Today’s Stamp Off Challenge is to make a shaker card. This was a perfect choice since I went to Salt Lake City for Stamping’ Up! OnStage. They just happen to give up a new stamp set and we were able to buy new In Colors, a punch and some Framelits that are perfect to use for a shaker card!
The stamp set is called Painter’s Palette. It comes with 9 stamps including the easel, some splotches (I don’t know what else to call them) and three sentiments. It is a very cute set that can be used in a lot of different ways. The punch is called Sprinkles and is meant to be used with a shaker card. Here is a close up of some of the shapes that this punch will make.
It makes a couple of swirls, a diamond, star, little circles and a couple of others. I also used three of the new In Colors that will be coming out in the next catalog. They are Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo. You will love these new colors! Lastly, I used a new set of Framelits called Layering Squares to cut out the middle of the easel. There are 19 dies in this set. Some are scalloped edged and some are plain squares and they all layer very nicely.
On a side note, today is my granddaughter, Madelyn’s, first birthday (Waffles is giving her a kiss). I don’t know where the time went. It is hard to believe she is one already! Next week I will post some pictures of her first birthday party which will be tomorrow. A grandmother is allowed to do things that may be fun or may be quirky. Here is a picture of the dress I bought for Madelyn to wear to her birthday party. The second I saw it, I knew I had to buy it. That is a result of having three boys and not being able to buy pretty little girl dresses ever!
